Five Food Items That Contain Gross Ingredients

August 24, 2012 Comments Off

Food manufacturers due to modern food processing techniques are adding toxic and gross ingredients in our food. It is shocking to realize that the government and food monitoring agencies do not advertise or stop these food processing techniques. Here is a list of food items that you should stop buying the next time you go shopping:

Products made from grain
L-Cysteine is non-essential amino acid. It will come as a big shock but L-Cysteine is made from dissolved Chinese human hair or duck feathers! This ingredient is used as a commercial dough conditioner – it is supposed to improve the texture of baked goods. Eating something that is derived from the human body not only violates many religious and ethical beliefs, it is also very disguising! Start eating unprocessed whole grains like brown rice and oats. Finally, learn to make your own baked goods!

Coffee creamers, canned icing and salad dressing
Chemical titanium dioxide is commonly found in paint and sunscreen. This tidbit will not shock you! However, did you know that this chemical component is also added to your coffee creamers, canned icing and salad dressing? Simply to make them appear more white. Experts have found that titanium dioxide sometimes is contaminated with toxic lead.

So avoid coffee creamers and canned icing in your coffee and desserts. Moreover, you are better off with vinegar or olive oil based salad dressing that you can easily make at home.

Candies, cereals and jelly beans
Artificial food dyes are made from ingredients extracted from petroleum! Candies, cereals, pickles and probably many other food items are made from artificial food dyes. The worst part is that these packaged food are made from artificial ingredients instead of natural ingredients. Take, for example, Betty Crocker Carrot Cake Mix. It is not made from a single carrot! Instead, carrot flavored pieces made from colors Yellow 6 and Red 40 are used to make this cake mix. According to health experts, orange and purple dyes in particular can impair brain function. Other dyes are associated with ADHD and dangerous toxics.

Even processed juice like Tropicana Twister Cherry Blast is made from artificial ingredients for great taste but not a single cherry.

Canned Mushroom
Next time you buy 3.5 ounce can of mushroom, remember 19 fly larvae and 74 mites have feasted on them. Moreover, these cans are usually lined with Bisphenol A (BPA) that leads to unnatural hormonal changes. Therefore, you should opt for fresh mushrooms whenever you can!

Shrimp
According to experts, farmed shrimps are kept in fitly farm pens. They contain illegal antibiotics that are harmful for you. What makes it worse is that only 2% of all imported seafood is inspected. This means if you are eating imported shrimp, there is a good chance you are eating contaminated shrimps.

Start buying domestic shrimps because they are monitored by the local food agencies!

On a final note, gone are days where you would blindly eat your food. Research the food you eat and make sure there are no risks in eating them!
